Chuck Smith and Evildea (Amikumu app)

Sat, Oct 22: 13:30 Los Angeles, 16:30 New York, 20:30 UTC, 22:30 Berlin
Sun, Oct 23: 7:30 Sydney

Hey there, Chuck Smith and Richard Delamore (a.k.a. Evildea) here. As you've probably already heard, we're developing an app called Amikumu, which you can use to find language partners near you, whether that's as niche as Esperanto, as popular as English or as visual as American Sign Language, you'll be able to find people to talk with (in over 7,000+ languages including 100+ sign languages)!

We've been blown away by the support from the language community as we launched our Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday and already reached our goal to raise €8,500 (US$9,400) in just 27 hours... you're all so amazing! Now we're going for our second stretch goal... next adding events to the app if we reach €13,000. So, we're going to be here on Duolingo's official forum for a couple hours on Sunday (or Saturday morning for those of you down under). Ask Us Anything in English or Esperanto! It doesn't even have to be about the app.

We look forward to talking with you soon and if you just want to know more about us individually, check out the archives of our previous AMAs: Chuck Smith and Evildea

You can find our campaign at Amikumu on Kickstarter

Laŭ mia aktuala plano, mi malfermos la fadenon je la 20:00 mezeŭropa tempo por ke eŭropanoj povu starigi demandojn, kiujn li povos respondi dum la planita tempo. :)

According to my current plan, I'll open the thread at 8pm Central European Time so that Europeans can ask questions, which he can then answer according to schedule. :)

Those in Alaska or the Mountain time zone are used to being ignored. But what about London?

Most folk here (the U.K.) are, as far as I've experienced throughout my life, quite aware of how our time zone relates to mainland Europe (which is pretty uniform for the most part), so the info regarding Germany's timezone is enough. We initiate and end DST on the same dates, so there's no issues with misalignment - we're always an hour behind.

And what about Australia, or India, or Fiji?

It's not as if London, Alaska, and Mountain time are the only ones being "ignored".
